The aim of this study was to conduct a 1-year full esthetic evaluation of the treatment outcomes of gingival recession using the root coverage esthetic score (RES) system. One hundred patients with 195 single or multiple recessions were treated using different techniques. One year after surgery, the clinical outcomes were evaluated. Only 21 of 195 (11%) treated recessions obtained the maximum RES score (10), while 68 recessions (35%) showing complete root coverage obtained lower scores. Both single and multiple recessions treated with a coronally advanced flap with or without connective tissue grafting achieved similar RES scores. Free gingival grafts showed the lowest score.
